Don't laugh... this time, Al Attar Tower's gonna make it to completion!
Guess the olive green will make a nice contrast to the bluish Rose Tower.

It can't be topped out
It's lower than Rose Tower, and it has to be taller...
Where is the spire?

Anyway not much progress with the cladding...

On the contrary, my own opinion is that it goes very well in Dubai where the facade colors vary wildly under the broiling sun. Sure it is flashy etc, but then it is like so in much of the city of Dubai, so it goes well there, whilst it would not in many other cities. Most of the city is new anyway, built in the desert, there is not much to take into consideration there as far as the design goes.

Who knows, in a couple of decades... these kind of designs might be considered "classical", or at least characteristic for Dubai, and new developments will be expected to take them into consideration .

Thanks to Imre for the updates today.

It doesn't look like the building that I saw. For example, that render had a gold cladding (not green). Have they changed the design? Can someone show me the new render?

Clading colour is always finalised during construction after they test on site different colours of glass and cladding panels and how they interact with eachover.

The colour of the glass is not green and is not gold ... rather something in between.

Very different and unique color that I dont think other building in Dubai yet carry this color of cladding.

I'm starting to like the color more. But it's still rather plain looking. I hope they break up the pattern on the mech floors. Seems like their going pretty high up without any changes. Not too my liking (yet).
